Marriage Diaries Chapter III – Shagan Night

Marriage Diaries of Charu Bhateja Shagan Function

Just a night prior to the morning we had to leave was Mehndi, implying we had a fun and tiresome night. With all our family members coming together, dancing and drowning in the joys of marriage, there I was, strangled in the melodramatic thoughts of her leaving me and opting for a new roommate (her husband). Nevertheless, I felt emotional and excited, all at once.

We wrapped up the function by midnight; however, since we had to leave for Delhi at five in the morning, we planned to clean the house as the floor marble seemed to be engraved with Mehndi. Ahh! I, mom and my first cousin managed to clean the house and by one we were all set to doze a little. But of course, decorated with the divine designs of henna, my sister could barely understand how to place her body in a resting mode. The mehndi boy had directed to remove henna after two and so I, with eyes almost shutting and mind transplanting itself to hibernation mode, chose to give her company till the divinity crafted on her hand exemplified the love of her husband.

April 13th, 2017 6 A.M.
Mom: Wake up, we are late. It’s seven already.

Me: Eyes wide open, body half unconscious… Staring at my mom trying to understand what’s going on. *Epiphany hits*. We have to leave for Delhi. It’s her Shagan function today.

Blanket thrown aside, on my feet to rush to the washroom, looked at the wall clock five minutes to six it displayed. **Mom will be Mom**

We had booked one traveler and two cars, everyone seemed to get ready by seven and the house was not at all hushed up.

“Start moving the bags outside the house, we need to keep them in the traveler”, said elder cousin.

“On it bhaiya” I said.

My lane is a bit narrow, cars can come inside but traveler would find it difficult to make an about turn or even reverse for that matter. So, we were all making rounds dragging the bags, some lifting them and others with sweets boxes and if at all there’s a doubt about how many bags did we have approximately thirty-five.

April 13th, 2017 7:30 A.M.

Mom to Dad: “We have to reach today, not after the function”

Dad said nothing and sped up his chores.

April 13th, 2017 7:45 A.M.

We were all in our respective seats, some in the traveler, some settled in the cars, we left for Delhi Cantt. The journey had been smooth and a little sleepy as we were all tired and had to stay up the entire night almost. And for the next two nights, things seemed no different.

**Marriages are serious ceremonies. We invest our time, energy, money and most importantly, our emotions in a two-day affair, in Punjabis stretched and made into a five- day extravagant affair.**

April 13th, 2017 3:00 P.M.

We reached the destination, Chief Engineers Mess, Delhi Cantt. We had our lunch and started settling into the rooms. We had booked 10 rooms in the officer’s residence and since they were given only for functions, only our family was there. Rest of the rooms were locked. It was nicely constructed a three-storied building in the shape of a circle with rooms at the boundary and the inside of the circle was filled with greenery with a lovely fountain in the middle. The rooms were almost as spacious as honeymoon suites and that helped us refresh ourselves in a jiffy. Some took a little nap, some unpacked stuff a little and then started off to get ready as the function had to start at six in the evening.

April 13th 2017 7:00 P.M.

Shagan, in punjabis, is a function where you exchange gifts with the other party (here, Kanav’s family) and show it off to the world. Here’s the catch. Although, it is said to be exchange of gifts, often than not, it’s mostly one party giving and the other party receiving. Accompanied by dance, drinks and hell lot of drama, shagan is one of the most in-demand functions in a Punjabi wedding.

We entered the hall, me, with my sister. And of course, we were the center of attraction. No, I’m lying here, she was the one. She had to be the one and that night, she, undeniably, was an enormously gorgeous thing. I saw my brother-in-law look at her and swoon in her love all over again. He couldn’t take his eyes off her and couldn’t wait to sit next to her on the crown.

Oh, did I not mention that my Brother-in-law is one of the most handsome men I have ever come across in my life? I just did 😉

**I’ll share his picture in the next and last chapter – Marriage Diaries Chapter IV – Kanav Ki Dulhaniya**

The larke-wale had prepared a dance performance and so did we. Everyone danced like crazy and some drank like crazy, same thing! We were thrilled, at the same time, tired and a little worried. The next day was marriage, and we wanted everything to be perfect, being a larki-wala does come with a bit of default tension and consciousness. But over anything else, we were happy rather delighted to have such a good family for my sister.

The clock struck 12! And her wedding day started …

A single color from top to bottom! Sabyasachi is of the opinion that it might sound loud, but looks perfect Give it a shot with fluorescent colors as well.

The Celebrity Guide to Dressing in Summer 2018

Kendall Jenner - A Fault By Default

With the summer heat coming up it’s the time of the year to show off your skin (or not), flaunt light airy clothes and choose from a wide variety of combinations to wear.

Celebrities are known to be the trendsetters in the society so let’s look at some of the summer looks that we can adopt from them.

Bra Tops

One of the best clothing to wear this summer is bra tops and bralettes.  They are quite versatile pieces of clothing and can be worn with many different pieces of clothing. You can pair it with an A-line skirt and a long loose cardigan like Bella Hadid did in Cannes.

Bralettes will help you in experimenting and innovate a new look for yourself. They have the ability to look good with anything.

Off Shoulder dress with a Tank Top

If you want to wow others with an out of the box look, this is going to be perfect for you. Inspired by Yara Shahidi this look may sound weird but with the right combination, it is the perfect look for an outdoor party.

Boyfriend shirts are best for the people who don’t have those perfect summer bodies. They will look best when styles with shorts. Kendall Jenner became the center of attraction with her Boyfriend Shirt looks at Oxford.

Look how she gave a completely new look to it by tucking her shirt inside the shorts and letting them peek out a little.

The Striking MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color Review 

Ritika Bhateja MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color Review 

Hi Guys,

Today, I will be reviewing a lip shade from MAC’s latest range of Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks. The launch of this line was their first step into the world of velvety Lips. At first, they released 15 shades which were mostly in purples and pinks and I must say they were highly pigmented and super smooth to apply on the lips. As a part of this ongoing series they launched 12 more shades in deep and muted tones and I will be reviewing the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade “High Drama.” So let’s get started.

Product Presentation

It is a liquid lipstick formula, which offers full coverage and a completely matte finish to the lips. No matter which shade you choose, you will get a feeling of glamour that is hard to forget.

 

Ritika Bhateja Striking MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color Review 

 

My thoughts on the MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour:

  • Packaging: High Drama is a dark plum color which will suit all skin tones perfectly especially if we talk about the dark skin tones. The lip color comes in a glass bottle with simplicity and elegance. It contains the codes of the brand and the cap of the lipstick is the same as other MAC lipsticks which make it a perfect member of the family.
  • Texture: It applies easily on the lips and is very creamy while being liquid in texture. But you will have to apply it quickly as once out of the tube it dries pretty fast.
  • Application: I love the applicator. It’s really smooth, allows easy swipes and helps to define and perfect the lip shape.
  • Color: The color is dark plum and it’s veraciously bold. It totally stole my heart away. It covers pigmentation well and provides sheer coverage to the lips.
  • Staying Power: It stays on pretty long. If you have a heavy meal it can last for 3-4 hours and a good 6-7 hours after light meals.  In case you have to touch up, you won’t face the problem of cakey lips.
  • Occasion: I would personally use this shade when I’m going for a night around the town or for those big functions we all have to attend once in a while. Or once in a while when to make a statement. *wink*

Pricing: Investing in a MAC lipstick is a dream of every girl.  This shade will cost you INR 1850.

The Striking MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color Review 

Quick Summary

Pros:

  • The packaging is simple and elegant
  • Veraciously Bold color
  • It’s easy to do touch ups without that cakey feeling on your lips
  • The applicator offers precision and helps to define the lips well

Cons:

  • Being matte, it’s a little drying formula. I recommend using a lip balm underneath
  • Less Pocket Friendly

Ritika Bhateja MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color Review 

So, would I buy it again?

I have a fair skin tone, and when I apply it, it gives a statement look. I personally love striking colors. I would definitely repurchase this shade and would also recommend it.

 

My Rating: 4/5

Why Are You Not That Successful – Dedicated to Discourteous Corporate Folks

Why Are You Not That Successful

Caution: This piece is triggered by emotions, therefore, please pardon my aggressive satirical speech. Especially dedicated to the Discourteous Corporate Folks – Men and Women!

Here’s something I want you to know about ‘specially challenged people’, and by ‘specially challenged people’, I mean those who contemplate themselves to be superior and sophisticated than others (For technically no reason at all). The ones who’d pretend to not see you because they think greeting or exchanging eye contact with you will belittle their “preposterously chauvinistic personality”. The ones who would not reach out to you at the first stance because that would mean dropping down their imaginary high standards, and come on how will they reach back to their level if they did.

Categorically speaking, they are the ones with little self-confidence struck by immense insecurity and yet showcase ostensibly high levels of ego, you know, just to recompense for their self-doubt.

And to all these people, here’s something I want to say, “Hear ye all, you’re not going anywhere. Get this printed, and post on your wall. Bye

Fret not, I am not gonna leave you in the middle of the ocean without circumventing you with the outrageous waves (Read: reasons) for you to ache with guilt, just in case, your conscience is pure enough.

Let me put this right into your perspective:

1. The more you swagger around place to place presumptuously ignoring the people near you, you build negative energy around you and for you. And this, definitely, isn’t taking you anywhere. Don’t believe me?

Try thinking about the people carrying persona of your kind and the ones who are generous and considerate.    You ’ll get what I’m sayin’.

2. Each time you walk past someone disgracefully disregarding the greeting message or the generous selfless smile, you portray a persona of none more than a jerk. And you actually end up demeaning yourself in the eyes of people. **Epiphany strikes**

As Theodore Roosevelt says, “Keep your eyes on the Stars and your feet on the Ground.”

However, you basically are good at neither of this. That’s certainly why you ain’t moving up the ladder as you should have had by now. Nevermind.

3. In your pursuit of boosting your ego, and following the discourteous culture, you end up causing distress to people, you transpire into victimizing them.

Well Amigo,

It’s called Karma, and pronounced as Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha.

And KarmaSutra: When fake fucks you in all sorts of creative ways …

Need I say more?

4. And here on your face – You’re setting wrong examples for people. You make this society a difficult and insensitive place. You are feeding a non-indigenous society in which your kids would be raised in.

Wrapping Up

Nevertheless, I won’t get down to your standards and become another ‘You’. You know why?

Because perhaps you have long forgotten that you once wore my shoes and faced it all, experiencing and contemplating exactly how I am today. But trust me, I won’t forget it. I’ll rather create an improved legacy for people to follow and carve a society your kids deserve to be raised in.

And if at all, this leaves you heart-struck, please CHANGE!

 

 

9 Sassy Quotes When You Need to Be Savage

People say I act like I dont care. It's not an act.

It’s great to simply be in a …mood. *shrugs* If you are sassy OWN IT.

Have you at any point been informed that you are sassy? Perhaps somebody said it to you adversely to influence you to feel like it was something you are expected to change.

Being sassy means you know how to go to bat for yourself. You have a spine and you are not hesitant to utilize it. Truly, that is very respectable. You must demonstrate the world you are not somebody who can be strolled everywhere.

Life is sufficiently extreme as it is and having a start to have the capacity to hit back (not physically!) but rather with spunk is dang cool. At the point when all the chips are down, you don’t surrender. You retaliate and you hit back hard.

Think about some solid ladies throughout your life. They are most likely super sweet and enjoyable to be near. A kind soul who you need to invest energy with. Be that as it may, when somebody crosses them, somebody they adore or tries to influence them to feel awful about themselves they turn into a BOSS.

Hell no, you can’t outrage them. Since they have a sassy mounted gun holding up to go.

So, on the off chance that you are a savage and furious lady be glad! We have a few statements for you that will help fuel your sassy shimmer.

  1. Even on my worst day I'm killing it

3.

Before coffee: I hate everybody. After coffee: I feel good about hating everybody

 

4. Throw me to the wolves and I'll come back leading the pack

Making Her Mark in the Corporate World – From an Ambitious Independent Woman

I entered the Corporate World with high dreams and aspirations, much like the rest of the World or as they categorically put it, much like the men. Thoughts swirling in mind, eyes twinkling with dreaming of skies, head held high, and with feminine poise, I was determined to make my mark at a place dominated by the men holding highest positions.

Do I feel apprehensive, you may ask? No, is my firm response till date.

I walked in and I saw read the judgements in the eyes, ‘eye-candy’ they declared I am. No, they didn’t announce it but I knew it from their eyes, for I’m a Scorpion and that’s what my Scorpion traits have taught me, ‘pierce into the thoughts through the eyes’.

 

An ambitious Scorpio woman

Did I feel miscalculated, you may ask? No, is my firm response till date. However, I did feel underestimated.

I placed myself in my seat, and got the warmest welcome with the coldest eyes. Yet, I smiled ear to ear accepting the most hurtfully common human phenomenon. I got my first project, typically least challenging per-se, but work is work and worship and responsibility so I performed quite well. That was my first chance of proving my true estimation to counter that underestimation. But oh well! A less challenging task can’t really lead you anywhere.

Days passed and months too… I didn’t feel enriched. Being impatient, it became unnerving each day until one day, I decided to talk it out to the person concerned and so I did. “Naira, it’s about 20% work that you do and 80% how well do you connect with people and people mean your Boss “, and that was my first reality check into the world I entered. The person continued, “You need to keep your Boss happy”, I was of course aware of this sassy formula, however, my ears weren’t ready to receive the same by the Boss himself. Yet, with a poker-face I sat there trying to make the most sense of his words because honestly, I was rather stuck at 20:80 ratio.

My mind had started going to a different level because I barely could grasp the corporate mindset, words like ‘submissive’ and ‘compromises’ made little sense to me. As I tried to subdue the wrong thoughts and tried to admit that words can be misinterpreted, I heard him say explicitly ….

To be continued…

Unexpressed Emotions, Unsaid Stories and Unsung Battles…

Unexpressed Emotions, Unsaid Stories and Unsung Battles…

Disclaimer: The worst part about depression is,

People who don’t have it

They just don’t get it

 

Has been a while since I penned down my real thoughts,

Unexpressed Emotions, unsaid stories and unsung battles …

 

All I did was frown over the lost battles and mistaken shots,

Looked down upon myself, smilingly accepting wrong blames …

 

I had become a part of a miserable mess, created with my own despondency.

Perhaps that’s depression, that’s what it does to people – Cause Misery …

 

Hurricane of emotions at once and empty at the other stance,

There were lighter nights and darker mornings, I felt broken not lonely

 

The fake smile got heavier on the face, the eyes craved to shed tears,

Nothing moved a bit each time they said the three words, “Are you okay?”

 

Until one day I saw the Sun shine brighter and world gleam with joy,

Sky seemed clearer than ever, life somehow seemed to make sense.

 

I saw a better version of me, the one that had identified the power of hope,

And what it could possibly achieve! How the heart could smile so blissfully!

 

Yes, things take time but you got to keep trying, you got to be patient,

It might not happen overnight but it will. I fixed myself, so shall you…

 

That’s what it does to people, that’s what hope does to people!

Even though the agitation remains, I don’t fall anymore but fly… I dream…

 

 

Walked on Different Paths …

Walked on Different Paths ...

The night has almost reached its pinnacle,

And the sleep doesn’t seem to embrace my eyes…

 

As I lie down on my bed under the warm blanket,

I feel the void of sleeping to your voice over the call…

 

My uncontrollable anger, you mentioned, was the problem,

But with every problem comes the solution of “understanding” …

 

I did believe in the beautiful mess that existed between us,

For it made sense to me more than the routine life…

 

You elected to not perform the only act we did with perfection,

You chose to not talk it out with me but narrate a decision…

 

Perhaps, you didn’t want to resolve it rather decide otherwise,

For once in all these days did I miss the “talking” between us…

 

Had I been aware there would be unpleasant moments,

I would have refrained you from entering my world…

 

However, now that we choose to walk on different paths,

Here’s something I want you to know, I’ll be there for you like you always did…

The Beautiful Raw Moments…

Beautiful Raw Moments

Once upon a time, under the wintry clear sky and innumerable twinkling stars,

Amidst the chaoticness of life, one of the most incredible things happened.

 

As I quietly studied the messages on my phone, my face gleamed with a peaceful smile, 

Shedding the insecurities and revealing the imperfections, we walked on to define ‘Raw’

 

It was perhaps just another night, yet I noticed the beauty of it more than ever,

In the freezing winter season, I could feel the heart melt to the sound of him.

 

The days passed, as they do… and the nights became frozen than ever,

Yet, nothing seemed to have changed for us; we talked each other to sleep.

 

Waking up to his ‘Morning babe’ text each morning, and the warmth of his voice,

He never forgets to bring me my favorite Roses, even though he knows his talks are enough.

 

Freezing bike rides, hot evening coffees, cushy car drives and the quiet things…

We were two authentic people trying to make sense of the beautiful raw moments.

 

He tends to unravel my mysteries and decipher emotions that pass through my eyes.

I just adore the way he notices the little things even when they aren’t that noticeable.

 

With the fondness in his eyes, dominion in his touch and the innocence in his gestures,

Each day he continues to cast the secret spell to bind me to him for hours endlessly.
